Pakistan violates ceasefire for the third time in 48 hours - NDTV

Srinagar: Less than a week after killing five Indian Army jawans in an ambush at the Line of Control, Pakistan has violated the ceasefire agreement for the third time in the last 48 hours. The latest firing incident took place today in the Mendhar district of Jammu and Kashmir when five Indian Army posts were attacked.

Earlier today, a jawan from the Border Security Force (BSF) was injured in the firing by Pakistani troops in the Kanachak sector of the Kashmir Valley.

"There was sniper firing from Pakistani side this morning along the international border (IB) at Alfa Machial Border Out Post (BOP) area in Jammu frontier ," a senior BSF officer said.

Yesterday, both sides exchanged fire for around seven hours.

"Pakistan fired over 7000 rounds of heavy ammunition besides mortar shells on Indian posts during the seven-and-a-half-hour firing in Poonch," a Defence spokesperson said yesterday, adding that it was "biggest ceasefire violation" in recent times. No causalities were however reported.

On the intervening night between Monday and Tuesday, Pakistani troops ambushed a patrol party of the Indian Army, killing five soldiers, and injuring one in the Poonch sector, 200 km south of Srinagar.

The killing of the soldiers created a huge uproar in Parliament with Defence Minister AK Antony, in a second statement, stating the attacks were carried out by specialised troops from Pakistan. His first statement absolved the Pakistani army, saying the attack was carried out by militants. His statement was in contradiction with the one issued by the Defence Ministry, leading to widespread criticism, especially by the opposition, the BJP.
